It's something I've wanted to do for ages, and after a steady diet of Overhaulin and A Car / E-type / Bike / Chopper / Plane is born, I think it's time I started thinking a bit more seriously about it. After looking on the net, I think I've come down to two options: A Chesil Speedster: OR A Marlin Racing Sportster: I like the look of the Speedster, but it's a Beetle underneath the nice body. The sportster on the other hand, looks similar to other cars of the 'type' (Caterham, Whestfield, Robin Hood etc), but has a nice 1930's sort of feel and seems to be cheaper - plus it has bomb proof 3 series Beemer underpinnings. So, what do you think - classic Porsche look-a-like, or two seat open wheel BMW? Also, has anyone built a kit car before? What advice can you give me?
